Holly Molly this is the greatest thing ever!  What a fantastic job you did!

Here is a link for a discussion on knitting needles on airplanes.  You should also check out the FAA's website. 


Great Job!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm a knitter at heart.  For the first time I actually want to learn to crochet.  It's beautiful.  Great Job!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Starlet (popcorn stitch hat) on: November 10, 2007 07:57:15 AM
So I finally made my own Starlet hat and I LOVE it!  I was really afraid to try this.  The last hat I made I hated, but not this one!

I used pinnnedtothepage's pattern for the most part.  I cast on more stitches because I have a big head, so the decreases were a little different. 

I used Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice in a Dusty Rose.  It only took most of one skein. 

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Coffe Urn Lamp on: November 10, 2007 07:36:02 AM
When I first saw this lamp I knew I wanted to create my own. 


So my grandma had a awesome green coffee urn that I got for free.  Then finally, this summer I created it into a lamp. 

I bought a $10 lamp kit from the hardware store and added a lamp shade from Wal-Mart.

My dad helped me out with drilling holes in the lid and the back of the urn.  I didn't really want the cord to come out the valve so I did this instead.  My dad was really excited when I told him I was going to post it on Craftster.  He found this rubber thing at the hardware store to keep the metal from cutting/hurting the cord. So that was completely his idea.  He was really proud.  : )

Thanks for looking!

Question:  When knitting with circular needles you are supposed to take the stitches from the left side and knit or purl them onto the right side and after you are finished going through the 96 stitches you turn the needles so that the left side has the tail and you continue to the next round, right?  Otherwise you would knit it together and not be able to remove it from the needles, right?

I might have messed up on the cables but the part that is supposed to be cabled is not stockinette on either side.  In the picture (which its really hard to see I'm sorry) the cables have kind of a stockinette with a garter through them.  This doesn't make sense.  I have to be doing something wrong because it doesn't look like the pictures of the other hats. 
I have been k2, p2, k6, p2 all through the 96 stitches and then doing the exact same thing for the next 4 rows. 
I don't think I need a marker because that justshows me where the end of the round is and its really easy to see - so I finish a round and start a new one.
Sorry for bugging you guys about this but it's driving me crazy trying to figure out what's wrong. Thanks for the help.
